Empowered Eye On You is a painted eye study in a post card-sized painting series, Post Cards To Boobs. The pink shade ‘Empowered’ is one of five shades of lipstick created by preventative breast and ovarian organisation, Pink Hope, for Bright Pink Lipstick Day 2018. The colours are named after and worn by five affected women in the community.
The watchful eye belongs to the Empowered woman, Pascale, and support the mission of Pink Hope to “Know Your Risk. Change Your Future.” On the back of the postcard painting there is a written message from the subject:
“Dear Boobs, You are empowered! I am keeping an eye on you. Know your risk. Change Your Future. With love, Pascale. XX”
The painting also doubles as a breast check reminder for women on the first day of every month (January 2019).
Together with Empowered Talk To Me, this painting will be exhibited and available to buy in the Linden Postcard Show 2018-2019, 23 November 2018 – 10 February 2018, presenting small artworks in 8 x 10 inches. Opening night Friday 23 November, 4-8pm.
